6 Learn a song for 100 Day - "Cheer for 100"

This is an echo song. Sing the echoes.

As part of a 100 day celebration, have the children make pompoms with 100 strips of paper. (Cut 10 pieces of tissue paper into strips - then you have groups of 10. The children count out 10 groups of 10.) Use the pompoms as part of the performance of the song.
Use the movement suggestions given, or create your own choreography.
Ask the children to identify the purpose of the song. (celebrate 100 day)

Choose guesser 2, and soloist to sing " I have the book". (Teacher sings question, soloist answers)
Choose guesser 3, and soloist to sing "I have the ruler". (Teacher sings question, soloist answers)

In-Person: Choose 1 guesser for all 3 items, or choose 3 guessers.

When singing is allowed, this is a good activity for assessing pitch matching.
